The Benefits Of A Home Warranty

Ok, so you just found a new home and are ready to put your current home on the market.  You want your home to sell quickly and without any glitches along the way.  But what can you do to protect yourself and your buyer?  Well, have you ever heard of a Home Warranty?  If so, great, then you already know this is the way to go.  If not, then keep reading and we will look at why getting a home warranty is so important.

What exactly does a Home Warranty do for you?  The Home Warranty is really just an insurance policy.  Most policies will protect you from the day your home is listed on the market until one year after the closing date.   By buying a Home Warranty, you will make the purchase of your home more attractive to home buyers.

The Home Warranty will cover anything that could break down or go wrong.  Things such as a broken dishwasher or air conditioner, etc.  By buying Home Warranty protection, you will help to eliminate the worries about unexpected but necessary repairs for you and the home buyer as well.   This will limit the liability for both of you in the event that a problem is discovered before or after closing.

Home Warranty policies will vary; however,  the standard deductable is usually somewhere between $35-$100 but can vary from state to state.

So to sum up the advantages of buying a Home Warranty:

• It will potentially save you money
• The Home Warranty will repair or replace any covered item
• The cost of a Home Warranty is only a fraction of the cost of replacing a major appliance
